NRMP Transition To Residency Conference 2017
“The NRMP had its inaugural Transition to Residency conference last year. It was received so well we decided to do it regularly.” NRMP correspondent.
Mark your calendars! The 2nd Annual Transition To Residency National Conference will be held next May in New Orleans (2017). Those who have a stake in ensuring a successful transition from medical students to residency training in the ever-evolving landscape of healthcare in America, including GME program directors, designated institutional officials, and medical school student affairs and academic affairs deans and faculty. Other professionals engaged in research or clinical practice at the undergraduate and/or graduate medical education level, especially as it relates to match participation and processes, are also welcome.
Equipping the doctors of tomorrow with the knowledge and skills they need today to build meaningful and successful careers is the shared responsibility of medical schools and graduate medical education programs (GME).
Serving as a bridge between medical school and residency, The National Resident Matching Program® (NRMP®), is uniquely qualified to bring together undergraduate and graduate medical education stakeholders who aim to generate ideas and solutions.
At this meeting attendees will:
- Discuss ways to strengthen the transition from medical school to residency
- Identify tools and resources needed to make the transition successful
- Gain an understanding of how Match-related resources can enhance the matching process
- Address physician workforce trends and the impact on the GME community
After break out sessions, residents can enjoy the unique history and culture of New Orleans, one of the world’s most distinct cities. Steeped in a history of intermingling influences from Europe, the Caribbean, Africa, and beyond, it is a unique melting pot of food, music, and culture. Visit the French Quarter, not far from Canal Street just a few blocks from Bourbon Street, which offers a wide array of restaurants, shops, and music venues, or venture to the Uptown Garden District for a relaxing stroll in beautiful Audubon Park.
